G'day from down under,
I have just started to have enough time to read some of the online sketchup mags like CatchUp from the SketchUcation forum and as is the case in this forum, I was quite amazed at the tips and techniques I picked up. So I thought it was about time I got a bit more vocal on some of my goodies. One of which is keeping all my computers up to date and THE SAME. I use three computers, an up to date one at work and a faster one at home, which I use both at the same time using "drop box". I also use DropBox to send renders to my clients just using a URL. So to keep all my work the same I always carry a 1TB paocket hard drive which is my synchronization and backup drive bucket. and from this drive I use "AllwaySync" to synchronise my plugins directories on all three machines (Lap top too). I always have a "MySketchup" folder which I also sync which has all my materials, styles, templates... The only thing i cannot sync is the the toolbar positions, but I'm sure I will find a setting for that soon. The other advantage is if I trash some settings i can always raid one of the other computers to get stuff back. Hope this may be useful. Both DropBox and AllwaySync are available for free. Regards Paul J

Nice tips! I have an app called Syncmate which allows me to keep folders synchronised, but I use a USB memory stick. I hadn't thought of syncing my SU installations with this method though.
We also rely on DropBox for Podium development. Fantastic tool!
